What is Rick Simpson Oil?

Created by a Canadian scientist Rick Simpson in 2003, RSO to treat an aggressive form of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma. This led him to research on the impact of THC on other cancer cells. From there, he created a cannabis extract, known as Rick Simpson Oil (RSO). Within only four days of applying on the skin topically, the cancerous cells were reportedly gone. Convinced of the effectiveness of cannabis, Rick Simpson cultivated his own blend of cannabis, targeted specifically for cancer.

Where To Get Rick Simpson Oil?

When someone who’s heard about Rick Simpson Oil gets a cancer diagnosis, one of the first things they ask is “where to get Rick Simpson Oil?”. With cannabis being legalized in so many countries these days, one would think that natural medicine would be easily accessible. Unfortunately, this is not the case for a number of reasons. RSO is extremely time consuming and costly to make. Many producers do not understand the process of stripping the cannabis plant’s trichomes properly, to preserve the medicinal contents such as cannabinoids and terpenes. Done correctly, the end result is a powerhouse of over 100+ healing compounds, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Where to Buy Rick Simpson Oil

Finding a legitimate retailer to buy Rick Simpson oil online is difficult because most dispensaries are not allowed to ship and will only sell to local customers with a valid state cannabis card. RickSimpsonOil.com is currently the only licensed retailer that is willing to ship both domestically and internationally.

Is it safe to buy Rick Simpson Oil online?

There are a number of issues to consider when buying Rick Simpson Oil online. Primarily avoid getting scammed! Social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram are littered with fake websites who typically prey on older individuals who they know are not so tech savvy. These scammers know that most cancer patients and their loved ones have nothing left to lose and are willing to take the risk of paying through unsecured means such as: Money Order, Zelle, CashApp, Venmo, Bank Wire and cryptocurrency. These methods of payment are convenient but offer zero protection. Scammers will often go quiet and disappear once payment has been made.

RickSimpsonOil.com is the official site that offers all forms of secured payment options including credit card. 

Rick Simpson Oil Buy in the USA

RickSimpsonOil.com is one of the first RSO distributors in the USA that has cannabis for sale in a variety of strengths and strains. All of their products are lab tested and are free of pesticides and impurities. 

High THC

Many dispensaries do not carry Rick Simpson Oil because it is simply too costly to make. One pound of cannabis will typically yield about one ounce of RSO, therefore, it is much more profitable to sell other products with a much lower concentration. Since THC concentrations can vary from city to state laws, many retailers would rather carry watered down extracts that are less scrutinized. Authentic RSO should contain a full range of cannabinoids found in the plant, known as “full spectrum”. It is also important to note that cancer patients need RSO that has at least 70%+ THC per gram to be considered medicinally effective. Although any amount of RSO is better than nothing, stage 2-4 cancer patients need higher THC concentrations than people with other conditions. 


Hash is like a watered down version of RSO. When the cannabis plant is stripped to its purest form, it leaves behind precious resin and trichomes in the concentrated oil. This potent mix of cannabinoids and terpenes has the strength to treat conditions like cancer by effectively soaking and starving cancerous cells throughout the body.

Rick Simpson Oil vs. Cannabis Oil

RSO and Cannabis oil are similar, but not the same! Cannabis oil is a generic term, often used to reference the infusion of cannabis into oil. This could be any carrier oil, such as olive, coconut, and MCT oil. However, RSO is made by separating the plant’s cannabinoids from the plant’s material. Because of this, RSO is more similar to hash and other cannabis concentrates. RSO has among the highest levels of THC than regular cannabis oil.

How to Make Rick Simpson Oil (flammable)

  1. Use purified alcohol with quality cannabis to create a solvent.
  2. Strain the solvent multiple times to get rid of excess plant material.
  3. Heat the solvent so all alcohol is evaporated.

The final result should look like a thick, sticky, brown-black concentrated oil. 

***Please be aware that making RSO is potentially dangerous and illegal in many places. We do not recommend that you attempt the process without proper equipment and training.

RSO Treats All Types of Cancer

RSO can be used as the sole method in fighting cancer, or alongside other therapies. RSO treats all types of cancer, including lung, skin, breast, prostate, ovarian, colorectal, squamous cell skin, brain, and Leukemia. Other conditions RSO has also been shown to be effective with include:

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Herpes
  • Some types of infections, such as MRSA
  • Inflammation
  • High blood pressure
  • Depression
  • Insomnia 
  • Impotency

Generally, dosage is different for everyone. A variety of factors such as age, sex, and health factors will determine the amount of RSO needed. The standard protocol for stage 2-4 cancer is a minimum of 60 grams over 90 days. Many patients will continue on smaller maintenance doses, even when they are “cancer free”. RSO is also available in suppository, tincture, capsule and even edible form such as gummies.

It is possible to cook with RSO. Instead of using cannabutter, simply replace it with RSO. You can even mix RSO into sauces, salad dressings, and beverages. It is recommended to start with smaller amounts, and gradually increase to find the perfect mix. Cannabis edibles made with RSO tend to be more potent, so you’ll need less than expected.
